26 100 STATISTICAL TESTS Test 4 Z-test for a proportion (binomial distribution) Object To investigate the significance of the difference between an assumed proportion p0 and an observed proportion p. e. n 30) to justify the normal approximation to the binomial. Method A random sample of n elements is taken from a population in which it is assumed that a proportion p0 belongs to a specified class. The proportion p of elements in the sample belonging to this class is calculated. The test statistic is Z= |p − p0 | − 1/2n p0 (1 − p0 ) n 1 2 .

The null hypothesis σ12 = σ22 has to be reflected when the value of the test-statistic equals or exceeds the critical value. 48 100 STATISTICAL TESTS Test 18 Hotelling’s T 2 -test for two series of population means Object To compare the results of two experiments, each of which yields a multivariate result. In other words, we wish to know if the mean pattern obtained from the first experiment agrees with the mean pattern obtained for the second. Limitations All the variables can be assumed to be independent of each other and all variables follow a multivariate normal distribution.

A quality inspector takes a random sample of nine tubs and weighs the powder in each. 6 gm. What can be said about the filling process? A two-tailed test is used if we are concerned about over- and under-filling. 96, so we do not reject the null hypothesis. That is, there is no reason to suggest, for this sample, that the filling process is not running on target. On the other hand if we are only concerned about over-filling of the cosmetic then a one-tailed test is appropriate. 645. 05 (or 10 per cent) whether the test is one- or two-tailed.
